    I'm trying to take the reverse/trunk lights out but it's not coming out. I know there is 3 10mm nuts holding them in place and I already took them out but the light still won't budge. the brake/signal lights came off super easy. Is there anything else holding them in or do I have to pull on them really hard? Thanks.

    yes, 2 tabs/clips are towards the end of the trunk on each side holding the reverse light in place. Then you also have those 3 nuts.

    Honestly when i removed my reverse lights those tabs broke. You dont really need them but if its something that bothers you, you can maybe order those tabs/clips and just remove the old broken ones for the new ones.

    Thanks for the quick reply! I'm trying to paint the signals red and clearcoat both the reverse and signals :)

    Just shove a flathead screwdriver in there and snap them out. The tabs are 98% useless.
